Hello Everyone!
 
Anyway, sorry for my english.
 
My video card : EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Superclocked "01G-P3-1557-KR" HINIX Memory.
I'm cut efi_gop from the firmware for gigabyte gtx550ti "GV-N550D5-1GI" Release for SAMSUNG Memory,and compiled using "gopupdater" utility. 

 
I'm Flash a Modded Bios.
 
Result:

Conclusion gpu-z :
 

 
 
Tests graphics: opengl, opencl function, artifacts are not observed.
Efi gop driver is involved and performs its functions. Obviously it is physically and technically possible.
But I would like to receive from you the original EVGA UEFI. ; ) 
Anyway, do you have a UEFI firmware for this card?

    EVGA started using uefi vbioses on select 600 series cards. EVGA never offered uefi vbioes for the 500 series cards. If there is a uefi vbios available for the evga gtx 550 ti you'll need to contact tech support to get it. https://www.evga.com/about/contactus/

    I learned that technical support "Palit" has a UEFI-BIOS for 550ti.

    Ok, I'll contact tech support.

    But why does it exist for "gigabyte and palit", but for "evga" it is unrealistic?

    Guess evga just didn't see the need for the 550 ti to have a uefi vbios.

    I'm guessing
     
    Year 2011, (1155 socket) in it is (uefi_bios version 2.3.1) and support for ultra fast boot.
    Year 2011, the Intel i5-2400 processor (HD2000_Graphics) supports ultra fast boot.
    Year 2011, uefi.org/sites/default/files/resources/UPFS11_P4_UEFI_GOP_AMD.pdf
    Year 2011, (GTX 550 TI) is potentially possible ultra fast boot.

    HI.
    Sorry for bring this thread back after so much time, but I wanted to ask if you can do a little tutorial for what you have done.
    BTW I wonder if this efi_gop can be integrated to a GTX 560 (I have an MSI) vbios or if it's exclusive for GTX550.
    Thanks.
